Arraignment of alleged dog fighting participants in Houston Jan 8

The arraignment of Ellis Wayne Island, Jr, an alleged participant in the recently busted dog fighting ring in Houston, is Thursday, January 8.  

Ellis Wayne Island Jr., told the Houston Chronicle after his hearing that he did not have a leadership role in dogfighting. He would not say, however, whether he ever attended dogfights or participated in them.

"I'm no ringleader. I'm no kingpin," Island, 45, said after a brief hearing in the court of state District Judge George Godwin.

Island's initial court appearance was reset to Jan. 8 because he has not yet hired an attorney to represent him against three counts of dogfighting.
